TEENS UNITE FIGHTING CANCER

www.teensunitefightingcancer.org

Teens Unite is the only UK charity to provide ongoing support to young people, aged 13-24, with cancer, from the moment of diagnosis through to post-remission. We bring young people fighting cancer together to prevent feelings of isolation and loneliness during such a difficult time.

Teens Unite provide workshops and activities - tailored to the needs, interests and capabilities of the young people we support - designed to rebuild their confidence and self-esteem so often lost in a battle with cancer. The events give the young people the opportunity to meet others of a similar age, in similar situations and build peer support networks that are so vital to their mental well-being and identity development at this crucial time.

We also help the young people prepare for a future beyond cancer which aims to give the young people the confidence and motivation needed to return to education or employment, the incentive to follow their aspirations and be responsible for making their own dreams come true.

We cannot change the fate of the young people we support, but we can ensure that they live the fullest life possible.

Our volunteers are part of our Teens Unite family and at the very heart of our organisation. Every hour that you can spare is vital to helping Teens Unite reach out to even more young people in need of our support, bringing young people fighting cancer together.

“I used to believe that having cancer meant nothing but negativity and that your quality of life is restricted. However, Teens Unite breaks that ideology and teaches that you can most certainly outweigh the negatives by many positives. There are no words to describe how grateful I am for Teens Unite taking me on and supporting me through this journey.” Joshua, Teen
